After watching this clips a few times, it really is a toss up. At first the Creambacks really caught my ears, then after a few more listens the scumbacks catch my ear now...which might be a good thing considering I'm running M75 65 watters in a closed back cab with my Blonde Bassman type amp (Nocturne Blondeshell). Trying to squeeze some JTM45/JTM50 tones out of this. Defintely sounds like a king playing with my Historic 59 ES-335 with the volume at 8...which is basically 3:00 on the dial. Trying to get into a Club 40 setup soon!
BTW how do you like those Electric City pups? I've recently discovered these and now have a jones for the RD-59 sets, the Fatty Arbucker and Royal Tribute sets...
Thanks for watching, I'm Incinerator.
I agree, both good choices for someone needing a higher wattage greenback.
I'm digging the creamback's full lowend as well as the mids and highs.
Sounds like you have a nice rig already.
The RD 59's are my favorite as is the R8 that they're in. The ELC Royal tribute set sounds interesting too.
Think I prefer the Creamback. Seems more raw and raunchy in the mids IMO
as always!! great demo!!
did you jump both channels??
am gonna try those settings on the weekend...don't wanna disturb my neighbors with those great classic rock tones
Awesome sounds and playing.
Both sound really good. Scumback sounds (sorry) a little darker. More upper mids in the Creamback. Don't get me wrong, I'd be happy with either.
Thanks for watching strattitude.
The channels aren't jumped, I plugged into the top left input.
Thanks for watching!
Agreed but I thought the M75 sounded more biting in the treble department.
Well, I don't know about the rest of you guys, but those are going to be some expensive speakers for me... As they now need to be accessorized with a new Germino. The clips were great- tone, playing, and feel are killer. Thanks for posting... I think.
The difference depends on clean vs driven and single note vs chords. Driven chords seem to reveal most differences. Creamback sounds fuller/better, M75 definitely not worth 2.5 the price (in EU), wish I heard this before buying Scumbacks.
That's TGP for ya!
Thanx for watching, glad you liked it.
I hear the biggest difference in the driven chords also.Thanx for listening!
for both clean and dirty on that clip. my vote def goes to the creamback!
Thanks for watching, mcdes!
GREAT demo and playing (as always) Jim. And dammit...now I want some Creambacks!
I'm enjoying the Cream's.
Good to see you're playing out a lot!
Very nice playing, really enjoyed it.
Wow, I strongly prefer the Creamback.
that was a great demo- thanks
The Creamback seems fuller at first, but the Scumback more accurately handled the distorted parts, especially chords. They're distinctly more melodic, and less frothy/buzzy than the Celestion.
Thanks for watching and glad you liked it!
Thanks for watching, Purplexi.
They both sound good, just comes down to personal preference.
I purposely put "&" instead of "vs." in the title because it's not a battle, more like, "Here's what I have to offer, see what ya think."
Scumback = smooth, Celestion = more character and probably sounds better in a mix. That's been my only issue with my M75's, sometimes they are too smooth to the point of almost being bland in the mix. I'm definitely gonna try the Creambacks as some point.
Man both clips sound killer i suspect there are some key components inbetween the guitar and the chair tho....
